Wiley just has not hit enough for a guy that also is limited to strictly LF/DH. Reed is a tremendous athlete who can play center field. Don't write him off. Means is interesting. Give him time to get into baseball shape and then evaluate. He is a physical freak with the size/speed ratio. He needs to get his body into baseball condition and then he might show some things. Right now his swing is too stiff due to lack of flexibility because he has bulked up for football.
    I haven't seen Fellhauer myself either but judging from the scouting reports and seeing Sappelt play I'd give the edge to Fellhauer. Just feel like the odds are more against a short guy like Sappelt (think Danny Ray but more muscular). But I do believe he has enough talent to be a 25th man/5th OF type. Sort of like a Norris Hopper type with a smidge more pop and less contact ability. He needs to do some serious polishing of his skills though.

    Saw Fellhauer in the College WS, he's a Chris Heisey type player, CF great speed, good glove, batting in the 3 hole for CSF.

    Sappelt has some talent but I think he is going to be one of those guys who looked best in Billings. Scouts say his swing will get exposed as he faces better pitching. The thing I like most about him is his range in the outfield. The thing I like least is he obviously plays for his own stats (ie: stealing third when trailing by six runs when the defense is not really holding him...yet when you need him to steal second in a one-run game, he gets thrown out. The stolen base he got when the opponent was basically conceding the base looks the same in the stats and he is trying to build his stats). He has gotten thrown out on the bases so many times this season when he should not have even been running that you wonder why it has been tolerated.

    Looks like 2 more have signed

    GCL roster now showing Silva and Gonzalez on the roster, so our 9th and 30th rounders have inked. Gonazalez will be interesting to watch as he put up some insane hitting #s in JUCO ball.

    I wonder how Silva is going to get much PT in that stacked OF that already boasts Yorman, Duran, Morrison, and Bowe?
    Go BLUE!!!

    Going to be real interesting to see them work that

    OF rotation. Silva known for plus speed and defense, but the hitting is well behind those. At least the Reds are stacked with athletes all over the place on that team at just about every position.

    Plus they can take advantage of the DH. Silva has a good looking BP swing. Hopefully the coaches can work with him and they can get it working well in games.

    Re: 2009 Reds draft signings

    Saw this little blurb about Tim Crabbe on a Cali web site:

    http://presidiosports.com/2009/06/wo...sters-win-4-3/

    NOTES: Tim Crabbe, who pitched for Westmont and the Foresters, signed a contract with the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday and will head out to play for their rookie-level club in Billings, Montana on Friday. Foresters shortstop Michael Liberto will head back home to Louisiana for surgery after being diagnosed with a torn labrum. He will be out for the rest of the summer.
